Differentiating for Learning - what it is, what it isn't and why it is important

Dylan describes how teachers can address student needs in their day to day practice in order to differentiate effectively.

  • What differentiation is not
  • Why differentiation is important

as we explore some of the key principles around Differentiating for Learning:

  1. Everyone can develop knowledge, understanding and skills.
  2. All students need to be challenged in their thinking in order to learn.
  3. All learners in the classroom need to be motivated to learn.
